We were once again fortunate to begin our year by joining SD#10 (Arrow Lakes) for two days of professional learning in beautiful Nakusp. Many thanks to new Superintendent Terry Taylor for the invitation and to all the teachers and administrators for welcoming us so warmly and sharing their knowledge and experience. While both days were very beneficial, our students particularly enjoyed the sharing of practice on the second day when they got a real insight into not only a variety of excellent programs and practices, but also the many positive aspects of working in a small rural district.
Another highlight of the trip was staying overnight in Nakusp at the Leland Hotel, the oldest continually running hotel in British Columbia. It was a treat to stay there, and dinner was fantastic.
